SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED

1. (SBU) Pol/Ec Chief delivered reftel demarche November 27
to Tuy Ri, Director of the International Organizations
Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, leaving behind
a list of the 62nd UNGA resolutions as an aide memoire. Tuy
Ri took on board our call for Cambodia to vote against or
abstain on these resolutions as they arise in the 63rd UNGA.
He was struck by the sheer volume and amount of time devoted
to the issue and seemed to agree that their content could
undermine the UN's credibility in the Quartet.

2. (SBU) Tuy Ri made special note of the three UNGA
resolutions extending the mandates of three UN bodies as
being "of particular concern" to the U.S. He was somewhat
receptive to Cambodia being absent during some of the votes
on these resolutions.
